Artillery: LORA From Israel

Archives

June 21, 2008:  Israel has developed LORA (Long Range Artillery Rocket), which is similar to the U.S. ATACMS.  Each LORA missile weighs 1.23 tons and carries a half ton warhead. With a range of 300 kilometers, GPS guidance is used to land the warhead within 30 feet of the aim point. These missiles are expensive however (ATACMS, which is fired from a MLRS containers that normally carries six of the standard MLRS rockets, cost a million dollars each.) It's cheaper if you can use smart bombs. But if you don't have aircraft up there, or control of the air is contested, you can get a LORA missile on a target within ten minutes of the order being given.
